Coinciding with the birthdate of Florence Nightingale – the founder of modern nursing – International Nurses Day, held on May 12, is a day to celebrate nurses and care staff around the world.
Residents and staff at Chorleywood Beaumont care home were happy to get involved by hosting a much deserved BBQ.
This year the World Health Organization has designated 2020 as the first ever global year of the Nurse and Midwife, because it will also mark the bicentennial of Nightingale’s birth. The theme is even more relevant in this unprecedented time.
Diana, clinical lead nurse at the home, said: “I enjoy looking after my patients and residents, I enjoy making sure that they are safe, specially through these unprecedented times that we are living at the moment, pending time with my residents and putting a smile on their faces is what I live for.”
Ligia, general manager at the home, said: “our nurses and staff are hard-working, dedicated, and passionate about caring for others, and that compassion and commitment has shone through even more these past few weeks. They continue to work tirelessly, and I’m proud of the professionalism and duty of care they uphold.
All their efforts are focused on creating an enjoyable environment for our residents, so it’s nice to take this time to show our appreciation in return.”
Resident at Chorleywood Beaumont, mentioned: “The staff here spend so much time and energy looking after us, it’s been lovely to show just how much we appreciate them, and they do a smashing job.”
The care home is currently still taking admissions for those that need care in the next four weeks, if you need help give a call on 01923 285 111.
